FAQ

Who created A Latina in Museums?

Allow me to introduce myself - my name is Karen Vidángos and you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram @latinainmuseums!

When was A Latina in Museums started? 

A Latina in Museums was officially created on February 25, 2017. 

What is new with A Latina in Museums?

Aside from the new look, A Latina in Museums has added new sections that hopes to cover more perspectives of the museum field through the eyes of the Latinx community. 

Why did A Latina in Museums move from WordPress?

I wanted ALIM to inhabit a space where it could fully come into its own. The blog had grown beyond my perspective and I wanted to showcase that and more.

Why did you change the Instagram username?

I wanted the Instagram account to be its own project apart from A Latina in Museums, where the community is highlighted and showcased. I also wanted to reflect the diversity of the Latinx community. This is how LatinxCurated was born. 

Can I write an article to be posted here? 

Of course! I want this to be a community effort where all our voices are heard whether we are 10 years in the museum field or a student thinking about graduate programs. Simply go to the 'Contact' link at the bottom of the page and fill out the form. Be sure to include what you would like to write about in the body of the message with "LXC" in the subject line. I would love to hear from you!

Can I submit photos for the Instagram project, @latinxcurated?

Absolutely! Simply email me at hola@latinainmuseums.com with your photo or tag your photo @latinxcurated or use the hashtag #latinxcurated. Just be sure that the photos are your own,  are in a museum (does not need to be an art museum) and you must be in the photo! Please no artist submissions at this time. 

Who created the new logo for the website?

I am lucky to have a brilliant graphic designer as a friend who has a great eye for clean aesthetics. Camille Hay created the logo for both ALIM and Latinx Curated, and all the variations you see throughout the website, social media platforms, and la tienda.
